    Morales makes his return and comes in as a sub in the 70th min. Picks up a yellow

    Eh I think they need more offensive weapons. All they do is defend

    Perhaps, but if all your going to do is defend, you could at least hope it works now and again!

    And TBF, for Fortuna, Morales is a somewhat offensive player...

    I would think that flu shot would be mandatory for all players. Well, may be the German vaccine is not that good! :)

    The only year I got a bad flu was the one year I got the vaccine. Since then, no vaccine and no flu.

    The last time I had the flu was 1978, around New Year's Eve. I was out at work for two weeks, one week without pay. Ever since, I've had flu shots every year, and have not had the flu.

    This is the first in a class of drugs that *may* revolutionize how we deal with and treat viruses. The flu shot is a well known shot in the dark, as the flu virus can take myriad of forms and the vaccine only covers for a handful. I've had the same experience as @Suyuntuy but it may just come down to dumb luck.

    Steffen and Fredo are becoming solid picks to be our #1 and #2 relegated Yanks this season. Düsseldorf looks worse each game.

    PS: CCV and Wright are likely to be #3 and #4. So far we keep it to 6 or 7, we're within the usual.

    Yeah... they look absolutely terrible... It is actually hard to watch. Not sure why Morales hasn't been starting...? Hoping it is just temporary as he is coming back from injury... but that is two weeks in a row coming on late off the bench.

    Regarding Steffan... I assume he wouldn't go to the Bundesliga 2 w/ Fortuna... He will be in high demand and Man City will likely have a ton of takers for his services.

    A flu shot is not supposed to prevent you from getting sick, is supposed to get you a mild case of it. For some folks (like me) it doesn't help and in fact, you get it worst.

    The flu vaccine comes from dead viruses or single-gene viruses. You literally cannot get sick from it.

    It triggers an immune response that may give you some adverse symptoms, but it is not in any way a "mild case" of the flu.

    I didn't mean to say that by getting a shot you are going to get mildly sick because of the shot but is supposed to prevent a strong case when you do get it. The shot doesn't work for me.

    Moments after I turn the channel to the Dusseldorf match on FS1, Morales charges into the box, tries to turn with the ball with a little backheel, and is fouled.

    1-0 Dusseldorf after the PK.

    Was a nice little run through traffic off a quick throw. The back-heel fooled the defender who had already swiped at the ball. Nice piece of work by Morales all the way around.

    What I like about Morales is he plays with passion that our MNT is lacking.
